On 3.13.13 we had the privilege of watching Betsey Johnson merchandise her Macy’s window display. Betsey managed to turn the sidewalk into a mini party, as she showed off her new collection. We were honored that Betsey used headpieces from the M&J Bridal Salon. She even placed a sign in the window that we had brought for her. Upon seeing the sign she jumped up and asked for someone to get the sign from us so she could use it in her display. We couldn’t have been happier!
After all the preparation, model searching, stress and endless hairstyle ideas we finally had our 2011 M&J Bridal photo shoot on Wednesday the 15th … and all the hard work paid off because it was a great success! Our photographer Michael Schwartz is a genius at what he does and we couldn’t be happier with our decision for choosing him, our model Alexa and hairstylist Johnny and his assistant made everything super easy and fun! We can’t wait for the finished look book in 2011. Here are some fun photos I took during the photo shoot giving you a sneak peak our out new designer headpieces and accessories!

Finding your perfect shoe for your perfect wedding dress can be somewhat difficult. Your either have to have that special luck at finding the perfect shoes for the half the price of what there worth or you have to spend a fortune. So what better way to get those shoes than to do an easy DIY, by making your own shoe with Swarovski buttons. You can take a plain shoe and make it pop out. Here are some inspirations. We’ve bought a pair of inexpensive white shoes and dressed them up with beautiful Swarovski buttons.
- Semi-Flush Cutter, Style # 44059 (1.800.9.mjtrim)
- First use the flush cutter to cut the shanks of the buttons
- apply hot glue on the shoe and a little on the button and stick it on the shoe.
- wait for it to dry, move the button to see if its glued on there good.
